Every week I get together with a number of business owners in our area to discuss what is working for our businesses and it is an opportunity to bring forward any issues we might have to get some help. For us, it has been a great sounding board as well as good tool for learning about other industries.
This week, we met at a local restaurant and the meeting started as usual. Many companies shared their “wins” of the week, but there was one story in particular that was very encouraging.
One of the new members of the group operates a laser therapy clinic wanted to share their success with an advertising campaign that they had run. He had read some reviews about the medical technology PR available at crierpr.com and decided to speak to them about running a PR campaign for their business. Their sales were flat and they were looking for some growth opportunities.
He proceeded to tell us about the campaign Crier Communications had created for them and their results. As it turned out, they were able to book their facilities for some of their custom procedures for the next three months which was something that they had never done before.
It was a very effective marketing campaign for them.
Imagine being able to go to the massage therapist each and every day and have them melt away the stresses from your daily life.
Wouldn’t that be perfect?
Now you can right in your own home with the Relaxology Massage Chair. This is the bestselling massage chair for 2015 and for good reason – they are a fully-featured massage chair that can massage your body from head to toe.
Relaxology Massage Chairs are the same brand of massage chairs that you would find in a hotel or spa. They feature state of the art technology that can provide many types of massage including full body deep tissue massage, full body stretch, lumbar heat massage, full-body zero gravity massage and lumbar heat massage.
The unit that we tested worked well and provided the same caliber of massage (or in some instances better) that you would experience in a luxury spa – hard to believe, but if you sit in one you would understand. The chair was very robust and provided a soothing massage. The massage felt more complete than other massage chairs that we have had the opportunity to review thanks to the 3D massage rollers – you could definitely feel almost every inch of your body being massaged.
We would give the Relaxology Massage Chair a 5 out of 5 rating – it is definitely the best massage chair that we have ever had the opportunity to use.
One of my biggest frustrations with many online retailers like eBay and Amazon is that they sell many products that won’t ship up here to Canada. This means that many items that you can find for a steep discount down in the US either can’t be bought up here, or we have to pay a ridiculous amount of money for them. This is especially true with electronics such as computers, and it is one of my biggest frustrations living in this country.
But there is now hope.
You see, I started using Value Shopper Pro LLC, a company that helps people like myself buy any product that is sold in the United States and have it shipped around the world. They make it possible for me to enjoy the same great prices and products available to American shoppers, and they make sure that it gets delivered to me here at home.
And boy does it work.
I decided to start off buying a good used laptop at half the price anyone was selling it for up here, and Value Shopper Pro was able to ship it right to my house.
That put a smile on my face.
If you are like me and are looking to buy products in the United States that can’t usually be shipped to the country you live in, you need to give Value Shopper a try as they get your purchases to you every time. To learn more, visit their site at http://valueshopperpro.us/
I didn’t think things through last night when I took my phone to the dorm party. I suppose that all I was thinking about was letting my hair down and having a fun night away from the books. But I should have really left my iPhone at home because someone picked it up and deleted most of my data off of it.
I wasn’t impressed.
Worried, I didn’t know what to do, so I spoke with James, the resident computer-geek on our floor. Turns out that I didn’t need to worry as much as I did as he was able to use some iPhone data recovery software on my phone to get everything back that I lost. In fact, he was able to recover all my pictures and contacts and restore the phone back to where it was before last night.
He was a real life saver.
Now I know that I don’t need to panic if I delete everything off of my phone since there is software like iFoneMate on the market that will save the day.
I will still have to think things through a little better next time – I could have saved myself a lot of trouble if I had done things differently.
After hearing about one of the college students here on campus being assaulted at night over the weekend, I thought that I needed to do something to ensure that I didn’t become a victim as well. I have so many plans for my life that I don’t need them interrupted by a violent assault on my person, so I wanted to be proactive and ensure I could handle myself should something happen.
I decided to take a look in our area to see if there was a gym or center where I could go to learn some self-defense skills.
There had to be some around, right?
The internet really helped me out when I learned about West Loop Gym, which wasn’t too far from where I lived. While they offered fitness classes, what really had me excited was the number of martial arts classes they offered. Their classes were offered throughout the day so I knew that I would be able to find something that would make me feel safer after my night classes.
In fact, I am taking my first class this week.
If you are looking for a great place to train in martial arts, or looking just to get fit, West Loop Gym has programs that would be perfect for you. To learn more about their offerings, visit http://www.powkickboxing.com/
For most of my life, I have dreamed of owning a restaurant. I love to cook, and it is one of my passions that I always thought that I would turn into money. But life hasn’t exactly worked out the way that I hoped, and I have not opened the restaurant of my dreams.
But I still love to cook.
This weekend, I will be making breakfast for my cousins from out of town. Each day I have been planning one meal that I will serve on the weekend to ensure that meals will be enjoyable and won’t stress me out.
For breakfast on the weekend, I have decided to stray from the traditional breakfast meals that we are used to and try something different. We will be dipping bread in culinary Agran oil, as I was able to get a good deal on bulk Agran oil. I’m also planning to use some of the leftover oil on a salad later in the day.
The weekend is certainly shaping up to be quite the tasty affair. I hope that my relatives enjoy the time and energy that goes into making meals for them. It should be a very lovely visit with my cousins.
There just never seems to be enough time in my day to get everything done. Between work, kids, and some spare time, I can hardly fit any kind of free time in my busy day. Since I have noticed that I am gaining weight each and every week, I thought that I should try and fit some exercise into my busy schedule.
So, I am trying out some group fitness classes at 5AM every weekday. I know that this time of day certainly isn’t for everyone, but it works for me and my schedule. I don’t have to worry about the kids or work, and getting my blood pumping through my veins first thing in the morning really helps me to wakeup and feel ready to tackle the day.
I can’t say enough good stuff about the folks over at Cross Town Fitness. They have been professional, helpful and motivational to the point where i really think that I will be able to lose the weight.
If you are looking for a gym in Chicago that caters to people that work during the day, Cross Town Fitness would be the place for you to train. To learn more about their schedules and fitness classes, visit their site at http://crosstownfitness.com/
Like many women, I learned all I know about bras from my mother. She was a woman that put practicality and function over looks. I was taught to buy a bra that worked, and it didn’t matter what it looked like. While this worked for me in high school, I learned that there were more options in college. In fact, I wanted to find something that highlighted some of my best assets while providing me with ample support that would last me throughout the day.
But I didn’t know where to start.
I wish I could say that I was comfortable talking about a topic like this with my friends, but my mother had taught me to never discuss these kinds of topics with others. I really felt alone, but I mustered the courage and headed out to a local undergarment store.
I decided to go to a store where I could ask questions of the sales clerk and get measured properly. If I was going to go bra shopping, I was going to get something that fit properly and looked good too.
I explained what I was looking for to the sales clerk and she showed me a selection of long-line bras for women that they had in stock. Trying them on, I see why she suggested this style of bra – not only did it provide better support than the bra I brought with me, but it also made me look more voluptuous.
I loved it.
This week I am going to wear my new bras to class and see if anyone notices – whether they do or not, I am so happy that I took the time to find a bra that looks good on me. I deserve it!
